Jones Beach Energy & Nature Center

This environmental education center located in Jones Beach State Park explores energy systems, conservation, and sustainability on the beach.

Inside the Center, children can feel live marine animals, look through a microscope, experience an energy-efficient playhouse, and make waves in a wave tank. Outside, children can walk through the pollinator garden, see whale bones and play musical instruments in the play area, and touch a real, 128-foot-long wind turbine blade. The Center also offers field trips, scout programs, and free educational resources.
